well i have 2 scientifc theories:

1.- they use programs like Photoshop or corel Draw, the got the image of the LS and cut the lenght of the saber

2.- they do the ls bright with those programs wich is more hard

thats all

-=Hooded Jedi=- I think I know why you're having problems with finding that icon. It's because you were looking at a PaintShop Pro tutorial. The icon you want is the line-drawing tool, should be where the shape-drawing tool (a white rectangle inside a black outline) is - if you click it and hold it a mini menu pops up and lets you select which tool you want. Or at least I think it does - I'm directing you from Photoshop 6, you see, but I imagine the layouts are pretty similar.

Get a screenshot of a SW character wielding a lightsaber and use the lasso tool and then shrink it or whatever, and rotate to the position u want it be in
